Jamshedpur, July 18: A delegation of social organization, Kalyan, led by its president Akash Jaiswal today handed a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner accusing private schools of charging fees arbitrarily thereby adding to the mental agony of parents of students. The note accused the private school managements of charging, along with tuition fees, charges for maintenance, library, transportation, laboratory, SMS and others to pile up pressure on parents and guardians. The Kalyan delegation demanded immediate action against the private educational institutions for charging fees arbitrarily. Jaiswal asked, “If they are teaching online, where is the logic in charging for books?” He further questioned, “Is pressurizing parents for purchasing mobile phones, internet connections not exploitation?”
Kalyan threatened that if action against the private school managements were not taken the members of Kalyan would sit on a hunger strike. The other members of the Kalyan delegation were Rakesh Sahu, Amit, Mithun, Dinesh, Nitesh and Suman.
